Hey guys...i am going to install my new radiators and hose's on my RM 250. The old hose clamps look crappy and want to replace them. Besides the normal clamps you can pick up at the local hardware shop.....anything else out there you have had good luck with. Maybe something that works good and looks cool?

I was looking at these TI hose clamps once, but I talked myself out of it.

I also like these, not sure if id trust it?

RM has hose clamp kits that work good. Im not sure how you can upgrade hose clamps though. Hardware store ones are exactly the same as a OEM one.

Not exactly hose clamps but I am always on the lookout for upgraded hardware bits - Parkrose, Wilco as local stores both have an huge fastener selection. I am in one of those two on a weekly basis. Mcmaster-Carr online also has really cool stuff..................

The constant tension style ones came on my 2016 kx450 from the factory. I had a weeping hose at the water pump connection, took it off and installed a traditional screw style one and havent had an issue since.

The Samco clamps are pretty solid. They are smooth on the inside so that it doesn't cut up the soft rubber on the silicone hoses. They are a little wider than stock as well. Good design!

I love the ease of the contstant tension kx style ones. Not sure i trust them 100% but they sure make working on the bike easy.
